Item Description...
Overview
The crown jewel of Bonhoeffer's body of work, Ethics is the culmination of his theological and personal odyssey. Based on careful reconstruction of the manuscripts, freshly and expertly translated and annotated, this new critical edition features an insightful Introduction by Clifford Green and an Afterword from the German edition's editors. Though caught up in the vortex of momentous forces in the Nazi period, Bonhoeffer systematically envisioned a radically Christocentric, incarnational ethic for a post-war world, purposefully recasting Christians' relation to history, politics, and public life. This edition allows scholars, theologians, ethicists, and serious Christians to appreciate the cogency and relevance of Bonhoeffer's vision.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Work in progress  Mar 19, 2007
In the fist chapter Bonhoeffer argues against the notion that what is spiritual is good and what is physical is evil. In the second he turns our focus from asking what is good to asking what is the form of Christ in the church today. He than gives a short history how the West has become godless
 
A voice that deserves to be heard  Jan 10, 2007
You can't speed read Bonhoeffer; as a German he was used to a high degree of order and formality in his life and this is reflected in his writing style. But his is a voice that deserves to be heard, because he was so acutely aware of the horror of the Nazi rule in his native land and his treatise on ethics was written in this environment. Throughout its writing, Bonhoeffer knew that at any time he might be executed by the Nazis, which is what finally happened just days before the war's end.

As when reading The Cost of Discipleship, I found myself understanding and agreeing with Bonhoeffer most of the time, but at times I couldn't quite connect - perhaps because I haven't reached the depth of his faith or his sensitivity to the issues on which he wrote.

 
The Complete Edition  Jan 9, 2007
Ethics is a difficult work to encounter, largely because the work was unfinished when Bonhoeffer was arrested and imprisoned. Most versions of Ethics require an editor to arrange the manuscripts into a coherent whole - but this being the "Works" edition includes all of the information (including notes about context and translation from German) surrounding the writing of the Ethics manuscript.

This is the version to get if you want "completeness", in-depth discussion, or research purposes (the volume contains an exhaustive bibliography) but it might not be for the casual reader that wants an overview of Bonhoeffer's formulation of ethics. (Otherwise, you might not understand why you are reading a chapter titled "History and Good" twice!)
 
Read the new edition!  Nov 6, 2006
The new edition of Bonhoeffer's ETHICS (Fortress Press 2005)is completely re-arranged, newly translated, full of helpful notes, and includes an introduction and a commentary by the editors. These help explain Bonhoeffer's ethical thinking and his radical critique of Nazi policies. The text and the commentary help the careful reader understand Bonhoeffer's rationale for working in the conspiracy against Hitler, and his challenge to Christians and the church in the postwar period. Bonhoeffer regarded his ETHICS as his most important mature writing, and reviewers have called it "one of the greatest works of 20th century theology." Incomplete because interrupted by Bonhoeffer's arrest, the old edition's arrangement created problems for readers. The new edition largely overcomes these problems.
 
Proverbs  Feb 22, 2006
"To do evil is better than to be evil." With that the reader is launched into a book filled with thoughts, and 20th century proverbs that require us to think. Thinking....a new activity for some, a joy for others. This treatise has been a source of great joy and in its new format and updated edition is a must for bookshelves, teachers, theologians, and those who work among the poor, the hurting, and the victims. Proverbs are not easy...nor are Bonhoeffer's ethics. This book takes a lifetime to dissolve into the bloodstream and yet we have history to put each proverb into a context that helps it become applicable to the 21st century and beyond.
